April is nationally recognized as Child Abuse Prevention Month. The Pinwheels for Prevention campaign uses a simple child’s toy to remind us that we all play an important role in children’s lives. During April, local agencies and child advocates will be raising awareness about the importance of taking an active role in promoting healthy child development, positive parenting practices and community action so that child abuse and neglect never occur. Hardee, Highlands and Polk Counties will be proudly displaying pinwheels to serve as a reminder that we all have a responsibility to ensure children grow up healthy and safe in our communities. Heartland for Children have partnered with the Lakeland Flying Tigers for our Annual event, Pinwheels in the Park. The event will be held at their newly renovated stadium where there will be a kids zone featuring bounce houses and other games, face painting, a balloon artist, and much more. The Flying Tigers will be wearing special pinwheel jerseys for this event, and sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses or agencies who would like to be a part of this year's event. Join them Saturday April 8th, with gates opening at 5 and game starting at 6pm at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium.
